:33 to go. >> mike: you brought up a name earlier, terrell suggs, t-sizzle. this is a defensive player of the year, not eligible to practice for at least the first six weeks of the season. everybody around baltimore likes to coin the phrase next man up. that's the popular thing to say. when you lose 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles, and it is defensive player of the years, there's no such thing, no next man up there. and as good a defense as this is, when you loose a guy like that that can win one on one on a consistent basis, your defense loses a lot. >> brad: 23-16, the ravens have an eight-game winning streak against the browns. the browns have made it hard on them tonight. the 0-3 cleveland browns, but right now they know they're still in the thick of this football game with three time-outs remaining, might be early to onsigh kick, i would think, but then i'm not the coach. thompson will take a knee. and the ravens will have it at the 20. after tonight, ten more games on thursday night. for you next thursday currently undefeated cardinals swoop in to take on the rams. surprise tea

on defense. >> finally, military. the president's re-elected, you'll see dramatic cuts to our military. the secretary of defense said these would be even devastating. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> if you're like me, you realize the general dynamics is at the fulcrum of both of these issues. if president obama is going back to that 2009 rhetoric, orders for gulf stream jets could be hammered. when you think of big defense programs that could be boosted by a romney presidency, go no further than general dynamics. you can see a real hit to earnings if the budget cuts become a reality. romney is unintentionally green lighting lockheed martin and grumman. now about half way into the debate romney gave us a fabulous short idea with this clip. >> you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to solyndra and tesla and i had a friend who said you don't just pick winners and losers, you pick the losers. >> tesla relies on the kindness of the government. that kindness will be over if the white house gets a new occupant. i suggest immediately buying tes

cliff. we could see major cuts in defense spending. given it gets 70% of its sales from the department of defense you can see why people would be nervous. however, i think those worries might be baked into the stock at those levels. it might be exaggerated. plus xls sports a juicy 4% yield. even if the worse does happen they're paying you to wait for washington to sort itself out. the other thing it represents a niche area within the budget. it's not one of those big old cold war programs that they have. i don't know if we should even be that worried. among the other things the company makes is highly secure communication systems, energy analysis, warfare systems, night vision goggles. it also has an information technical side where they do everything from aircraft traffic management for the faa and networks. that's probably less sensitive to the budget cuts we're all so worried about. last quarter was quite strong. if we don't fall off the fiscal cliff this could be the right stock to own. even if we do smash into the fiscal retaining wall, trading at six times next year's earnings. i
my face mask first. >> referee: pass interference. defense number 23. first down. >> cris: let's see here. i'm not so sure he didn't. clearly the interference was there. but i think that cromartie was right, too. he grabbed his face mask on the release. >> al: so the ball is at the 35. they're already within long field goal range. career long is 53, which he's done twice. 63 seconds. and manning will throw. and that's underthrown and incomplete, intended for cruz. second down. and there is tynes. hasn't missed one this season. clutch. he's been here before. >> al: second and ten. this time hixon and cruz go to the left and barden to the right. >> cris: nate allen was sneaking up like he was coming on the field. >> al: the pass is caught. that's barden. and barden is to the 25. that will make it a lot easier. now they're going to say no. barden had it, asomugha was there, then it gets waved off. >> cris: asomugha with a big jam off the line of scrimmage. then he's going to drag that thing out of there. >> al: wow. >> cris: has to maintain possession. two feet down. >> al: big play by

to the department of defense, that's only a tiny representation of the real number, which is closer to 19,000, because most victims don't come forward. and of the cases that are reported, only a fraction are prosecuted. >> i knew joining the military was going to be a sacrifice. this wasn't the intended sacrifice that i was willing to make. >> reporter: in darchelle mitchell's case, the petty officer she says raped her was acquitted and it was her navy career that suffered. >> my request to re-enlist was denied and my assailant, he was advancing in the middle of all of it. >> he was promoted? >> he was promoted. >> my sexual response coordinator basically told me don't expect anything to happen from that. you need to find a way to get over it. >> former air force sergeant laura sellinger said her command made getting over it all the more difficult. by ignoring her request to keep her rape private. she said they announced it to her squadron, and she was harassed. >> and i just went to iraq through hell. and now i'm dealing with i'm a slut, i'm a whore. i've never been so hollow. >> reporte

is not asking for, $7 trillion, just to give you a sense over ten years, that's more than our entire defense budget, and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do somehow you will not end up picking up the tab, then governor romney's plan may work for you. but i think math, common sense, and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. look, we've tried this. we've tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney's talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest jobs growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach that i'm talking about. we created 23 million new jobs. we went from deficit to surplus. and businesses did very well. so in some ways we've got some data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunity for americans. and i believe that the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks so that they've got some money
